#313-"From Vines to Vegas"
Location: Napa Valley-Chimney Rock/Las Vegas-Jean Louis Palladin Dinner

The Stag’s Leap Appellation in the southeastern part of Napa Valley is the smallest and most exclusive of all the wine producing areas in Napa, and Chimney Rock is among its finest wineries. Experts in Cabernet Sauvignon, Chimney Rock is class in a glass. We’ll sample the wines, learn what makes Stag’s Leap so special, and drop by Terra, one of Napa’s best restaurants, for a lesson in bringing great wine and great food together. And, speaking of great food, our next stop takes us to Las Vegas and Napa Restaurant, Jean Louis Palladin’s temple of gastronomy. Palladin is putting on a party and he’s invited some of the best chefs in the country, and us, along for the ride. From one Napa to another, it’s a memorable journey.

#314-"Bali-Everything You Heard and Then Some"
Location: Bali

I always pictured Bali as an island paradise, and I was right. From the markets, to the rice paddies, to the spectacular Four Seasons-Sayan resort, we’ll take you inside Bali as only Culinary Travels can. We’ll go to a local village for an island feast, head to the sea to savor some one-of a-kind digs, and dig into the sumptuous cuisine at the Four Seasons-Sayan. Unbelievable scenery and unforgettable cuisine-that’s Bali.

#315-"Mendicino Memories and East Bay Delights"
Location: Mendicino County-Fetzer/Bonterra wineries/East Bay-Peet’s Coffee and Tea/Cheese Cooperative

Many people think California wine country ends with Napa and Sonoma, but boy, are they wrong. Come with us as we explore the wines of Mendicino County at the Fetzer and Bonterra wineries. Fetzer’s one of the most familiar wine names in the U.S. and with good reason. We’ll show you a side of Fetzer you might not have seen before. Bonterra, meantime, is an organic operation turning out wines of stunning complexity. Now, if you like a little coffee after you have your wine, no problem, we’ve got just the ticket-Peet’s Coffee and Tea in the East Bay. And, while in the East Bay, why not stop by one of the hippest cheese shops, bakeries, and delis around? It’s a cooperative and it’s been that way from the beginning. How totally Berkeley!

#316-"Aussie Wine-Old and New"
Location: Australia-Chateau Tahbilk/McPherson/Owen’s Estate wineries

Where do you suppose the oldest plantings of Shiraz and Marsanne, two grapes from France’s Rhone Valley, can be found? If you said Australia, you’re right, and if you said at Chateau Tahbilk in the Nagambie Lakes region outside of Melbourne, well, then you should be hosting this show. Chateau Tahbilk is loaded with history and awesome wine and we’ll sample both. Its neighbor, McPherson, is part of the new wave of Australian wine hitting our shores, chocked full of fruit and loaded with charm. Finally, there’s Owen’s Estate, the home of long-time Australian winemaking guru Geoff Merrill. The only thing bigger than Geoff’s mustache is his reserve Shiraz. You’ll get a chance to see both in action in this show featuring terrific Aussie wine.
